    Location 4.78 /10

    About one mile away from Aghios Nikolaos, on the road to Elounda to the north; The hotel is located on the seashore, on the 25 hectares of a peninsula separating Mirabello Bay from the old Venetion ''Porto di San Nicolo'' port. Still today, it protects small fishing boats from the mighty Mediterranean winds. The Heraklion international airport is one hour and a half away (approximately 47 miles).

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    There are six types of rooms. In total, there are 125 rooms, all overlooking the sea, with balcony or terrace, and, in some cases, private swimming pool. The rooms have individual air conditioning, television (approximately 15 channels), safe (additional charge), direct international access telephone, and minibar. Every room is different: the hotel has tried to give each one a private character and particular style. Although simple, decor is very detailed and always based on local craftsmanship. Bathrooms are spacious, and feature a tub and hair dryer. Fresh flowers, paintings on the wall, brass ashtray: everything is designed with charm in mind.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    With a horizontal, two-storey architecture perfectly integrated to its environment, the Saint Nicolas Bay offers colourful, lush gardens. Plants and trees are carefully groomed and are a great part of the hotel's charm. There are innumerable bougainvillea, hibiscus, rubber trees, camellias, angelicas, roses, pomegranate trees, vines, lemon trees, apricot trees, etc. Crete's oldest Byzantine church (9th century) is located by the hotel entrance. It is Saint Nicolas church, the saint protector of fishermen and other sailors. This compound could be a village.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    In this hotel where every detail counts, restaurants are no exception. There are five restaurants, all inspired by Cretan gastronomy. The two main restaurants serve breakfast and dinner, as buffets, with international and Greek dishes. Three restaurants offer à la carte selections: Greek or Central European gastronomy, seafood, grilled meats and fish: Even vegetarian gastronomy is in favour.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Located just a few steps away from the hotel, the beach appears in several terraces along a coast that is more rocky than sandy. The access to the water through the sandy part is barely large enough to accommodate ten parasols... Deckchairs, parasols and beach towels are available to guests, as well as showers and changing rooms.

    To know

    Guests are primarily French, Italian, and Greek, and mostly composed of families. The hotel offers various options: Bed & Breakfast, half-board, or full board.

        Hôtel magnifique en Crête, dans une Junior Suite très agréable. L'hôtel est construit suivant une architecture particulièrement bien pensée qui permets de ne pas se sentir oppressés ou "entassés", et décoré avec beaucoup de goût (pierres apparentes, matériaux nobles...). Bref, 10 jours de bonheur et une situation idéale pour rayonner sur la région. Encore un plus pour la nourriture qui est absolument délicieuse et équilibrée! Je recommande sans hésiter, la Crête et cet hôtel!!

      • Advantages

        Luxe, calme et volupté dirait-on. Le séjour fut vraiment paradisiaque dans un cadre et une ambiance tout à fait idéaux!

      • Disavantages

        L'inconvénient principal est le manque d'une réelle plage digne de ce nom adossée à l'hôtel, mais ce n'était pas l'essentiel pour moi.

      A hotel designed as a traditional Cretan village. Small houses include comfortable apartments, all equipped with kitchenettes. Young and older guests will appreciate the two outdoor swimming pool, unless they prefer to go a little further to have a swim in the Mediterranean, sheltered by a small creek. A true change of scenery!

      Overlooking the sea, the Iberostar Mirabello Beach Village shines like a new penny under the Cretan sun, and the manager makes sure that it does on a daily basis! Not far from Aghios Nikolaos, guests can peacefully enjoy all the activities and amenities that are available here for adults and children alike. If you are looking for traditional architecture though, you should look elsewhere as this is a spacious, stylish and modern property. Efforts made to improve this place are evident, especially concerning the recently equipped beach.

      • Location 4.1

      The Club Almiros Beach is classed as 'Syrtaki' by the tour operator Heliades, which means that entertainment there is gentle. Although the team's enthusiasm is good to see, it cannot detract from the obsolete character of the hotel and its lack of facilities, including the basic, under-equipped rooms and the cramped restaurant area without a terrace, among other things. The only positive aspect of this place is the beach!

      Surrounded on three sides by the sea, the Minos Beach Art is a cosy boutique-hotel with a rich history and the first hotel to have opened in Crete. Designed to resemble a small village, it benefits from its ideal location and lush but well-kept vegetation. You will also be pleasantly surprised to discover a gallery of stunning outdoor statues here, however, although the establishment is comfortable, the atmosphere can become a little outdated and the cuisine is sometimes disappointing.

      A good compromise between a city hotel and the services offered by a club hotel. It is obvious that the facilities are not exactly new, but as a whole they are very well-maintained and numerous, which should please both those who like the comfort of a seaside resort as well as those who like their sport (a special mention goes out to the gym). The lodgings are decent but try to avoid the rooms with a view over the city (which is not exactly the most appealing) and keep in mind that there are family rooms available.
